This invention is a new type of mechanism that aims to couple the release of wakeboard bindings in order to prevent injuries. Normally, both feet are fixed onto the board by two separate bindings, and both the bindings and the rider remain on the board in the event of a crash. This wakeboard mechanism ensures that both feet are released from the bindings at the same time to prevent twisting of the knees or ankles caused by only one, or neither, foot being released.
